For a while now, fashion girls have been obsessed with pairing blazers with anything and everything – from bike shorts to pleated skirts – regardless of where they’re headed to. The most recent addition to this growing list of variations: the short suit. More specifically, a blazer with a pair of co-ordinating shorts.
We’re huge fans of this look for three main reasons. The first being that you don’t have to put much thought into pulling together an outfit and yet it still retains a preppy, styled look. We all know how ideal this is for mornings when you’re scrambling to get dressed. Secondly, It makes the suit silhouette a whole lot more casual, making it appropriate for less formal and daytime events like a summer party or weekend brunch. The best part? Sneakers go really well with them. And lastly, you get to don shorts while still looking sophisticated and classy. We desperately need that to beat the oncoming heatwave.
